Outside of Norfolk
Welcome to www.Norfolksdisusedrailways.com web page for all railway lines outside of Norfolk.
Cross Keys Bridge
Here we see the Cross Keys swing bridge on the now A17 Just before Sutton Bridge just past the Norfolk Lincolnshire border.
This swing bridge was used for the Midland & Great Northern Joint Railway on the Sutton Bridge South Lynn part of the line.
Cross keys bridge was built in 1897 and cost £80-000
This cost was the same amount the whole of the King's Lynn to Hunstanton branch cost to build.
During the railway days, one lane was used for railway traffic and the other for road use until the M&Gn closed and was converted to two lanes for road use.
These pictures were taken in April 2021
More information on the M&Gnr can be found on the
South Lynn Fakenham M&gn page
Looking towards Sutton Bridge, the left-hand lane used to be the old railway line, as seen in the following two pictures.

1882 to 1959
Walpole was just situated on the Norfolk Lincolnshire border.
The Wisbech to Upwell Tramway memorial
Wisbech to March Bramley line
Wisbech to march part of the now disused Bramley Line that closed to passengers in 1968
The line once ran from Watlington | Magdalen Road to March via Wisbech and closed to passengers in 1968 and was in use as freight until 2000 between Wisbech goods yard and the march main line by Whitemoor yard.
This part of the line outside Norfolk is no longer in use but remains still down and, maybe one day will be reopened as a no frills passenger service between a new station site at Wisbech and March.
There is a large page dedicated to the line between Watlington | Magdalen Road and March via Wisbech on this website please click the link below
